Kayak rack

Looking for suggestions on a removable kayak rack that I can put on the bed rails of my F250 that will support a 12' and 14' yak. They will have to extend over the roof of the truck because I will be pulling my travel trailer. I'm getting more into checking out of state parks and tired of having to always take two vehicles so my better half can tow the boat. I feel that being able to take the kayaks will extend the distance we wan't to camp without having to worry about two trailers/vehicles taking the boat along.

If you don't mind a couple of mounting holes in the bed rail,there's this:

OR

Maybe a PVC Cube shaped gizmo made out of 3 or 4 inch PCV that sits in the bed of the truck or maybe on the rails and can be held down with a couple of straps? If you cross bolt the connections instead of gluing them, you could take it apart and easily store it when you weren't using it. I'd think it would be strong enough for a couple of kayaks.

An over the cab ladder rack (used from Craigslist) then add either pool noodles or thing foam insulation to protect kayaks and tie down straps.

Cheap solution

2 x 4's inserted in the bed 4 corner holes. You'll have to slightly cut away some of the wood for a tight fit. Steel bars across and screw in a plate where the steel bars will screw to the 2x4 supports < Home depot. Pool noodle to pad the steel bars. I did this years ago and made multiple 500+ mile trips at high speeds. You don't loose any bed area either because the yaks are raised. Easy, simple, effective and cheap. Hold them down with ratchet straps.

You can find them on Fb marketplace. Here is one that the back rack over the tailgate is removable: https://www.facebook.com/marketplace...51799025785846 Here is another where the whole thing bolts together (look at the second picture) which may be good for storage when you don't need it: https://www.facebook.com/marketplace...66312517849650

I bought a one-man canoe loader and a single bed rack. The canoe loader attaches at the hole for the trailer ball and pivots. Load the back end then swing it around over your head to the cab of the truck.
